NBA YoungBoy is in trouble once again. The 22-year-old rapper tested positive for THC after it was revealed he attempted to fake his previous drug test the day before. Mind you, YoungBoy has been on house arrest since last October. The rapper had allegedly been putting off drug testing all July. When he finally agreed, things went south. According to AllHipHop, the rapper tried to use a clean urine sample from someone else. However, this didn’t fool the observing officer at all. When confronted, he left without permission. The U.S. Lawyer’s Workplace for the Center District of Louisiana said, “The defendant denied utilizing a tool and wouldn’t adjust to the officer’s makes attempt to view the system.” They continued, saying the rapper knew “that the check can be negated, and a second pattern can be required.” He was allowed to get water, then made his escape.
He returned the next day, and when asked about his positive drug test results, he admitted to using a CBD vape pen. The Baton Rouge rapper is currently on house arrest. The U.S. Attorney’s Office argued he needs to stay where he is since he’s not only tested positive for THC, but illegally went to the studio.
Onto Better Things
The rapper may have his share of legal troubles, but musically, he’s thriving. On August 5, he dropped his album “The Last Slimeto.” Guests on the album included artists like Kehlani and Quavo. He also released a handful of videos to accompany the album, the latest being “Digital,” which came out August 7. It’s his fourth studio album, released through Atlantic Records. The rapper’s future is uncertain for now, but he’s still feeding his fans content, so he’s staying productive. If things work out in his favor, meaning if he gets off house arrest anytime soon, fans could have a tour to look forward to.
